PUT ON THIS PRODUCT OCTOBER 1ST. ON OCTOBER 16TH I PULLED OFF 5 EMBEDDED TICKS..COSTUMER SERVICE SAYS THAT THE TICKS WILL DIE IN 48 TO 72 HOOURS AFTER SUCKING SOME BLOOD.. IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS PRODUCT TO REPELL AND KILL TICKS? HAS ANYONE ELSE USED THIS PRODUCT ON THERE DOGS? I AM NOT VERY HAPPY ABOUT THIS DON'T WANT THE REST OF THE FAMILY TO GET BITTEN BY TICKS.. THEY WERE DEER TICKS VERY LIKELY CARRYING LYME DISEASE MAGGIE

I used this stuff this summer and even went 8 weeks at a time with now tick problems. This included running Ginger in prime tick country around Binger, OK. I would give Ginger Heartgaurd on the 1st of the month and advantix on the 15th of each month. The Heartgaurd has some minor tick repelling properties, so by staggering them, I probably got a better effect of the treatments.
